As a commercial driver, you’re held to a higher standard than other motorists. What another driver might see as an annoying traffic ticket to be paid could be a real threat to your livelihood. At Southwest Legal, we represent professional drivers who have been ticketed or arrested for commercial driver’s license (CDL) violations such as speeding, reckless driving, and DUI. Our team understands how much is at stake for CDL holders, and we fight to protect their interests as we seek to lessen their penalties or get their tickets or charges dismissed.
Types of CDL Violations in California
Commercial drivers, including those who drive tractor-trailers and buses, are tasked with operating immense, hard-to-maneuver vehicles. They may be restricted to certain lanes or must observe lower speed limits than other drivers, and they cannot drive with a blood alcohol concentration of .04% or greater, which is half the legal limit for other motorists. When commercial drivers are accused of violating California traffic laws pertaining to their vehicles and how they are operated, they may be ticketed or even criminally charged.
There are many different types of CDL violations, and we handle them all:
- Red light violations
- Weigh station tickets
- Commercial DUI
- Reckless driving
- Unsafe lane changes
- Driving on a suspended license
- Driving under the influence of drugs
- DUI causing injury
- Failure to use a designated truck lane
- Driving over 55 mph truck speed limit
You cannot afford to ignore any ticket associated with your commercial driver’s license. Doing so could result in the suspension of your license and ineligibility to obtain a CDL in the future. Your best option is to involve a firm with experience handling CDL violations in your area.
With offices in Banning, Indio, San Bernardino, and San Diego, our CDL violation attorneys represent commercial drivers across Southern California, from Blythe to Fontana to Palm Springs. Drivers turn to us for legal counsel because they know the full impact that a ticket or violation can have on their jobs and their lives.
